Older Rockwell Drill Press - 1 reply

My current Delta drill press has a certain amount of lateral movement in the quill, especially at full extension.

This is not a problem on most drilling tasks, especially when the starter hole h...

Question for Laguna 1412 Bandsaw owners - 7 replies

I am considering purchasing this bandsaw. I am not really unhappy with what I have. It is a 1970’s Rockwell-Delta 14” with riser block, 1 HP motor, Kreg fence.

Thein Dust separator for Dust Collector - 5 replies

Any users out there? Did you make one that fits into the bucket or as a top hat on top of the bucket? How well did it work as compared to just using the inlet/outlet piping? How much do you think it cuts down on suction? Thanks
